Soundarya Lahari is a sacred hymn composed by saint Adi Shankara. Soundarya is beauty and Lahari is a wave and this ‘wave of beauty’ indeed remains as a literary work of remarkable beauty. This sings the praise of Goddess Shakthi and underscores her divine grace and boundless compassion in 100 slokas.

Shakthi is the universal mother and is the personification of the ultimate feminine power. She is pure energy. She is also Parvathi, the gentle aspect of the Goddess and being the consort of Lord Shiva, she remains as his power too. She is also known in many other names such as Devi, Sati, Durga, Kali, Tripura Sundari, Annapurna, Akhilandeswari, Lalitha Tripurasundari and Adi Parashakthi. This benevolent Goddess is said to govern aspects like fertility, love and devotion and her worship is believed to bestow the devotees with auspiciousness and all round benefits.

Surya or Sun is the king among planets. He is a powerful, royal entity, who is the source of energy to the universe. He denotes high rank, will- power and the soul. An afflicted Sun can hit self-confidence and weaken a person on all fronts.

This Soundarya Lahari sloka can help to ward off the ill effects of Surya Graha afflictions

Surya or Sun is a Star which provides energy to all the planets and organisms living on Earth. This sloka describes about Surya the Sun.


Jabakusuma Sangaasam kaasyapeyam Mahaathyutim

Tamorim Sarva Paapagnam Pranadosmi Divakaram


Oh Surya, you shine like a Jabakusuma flower, you are the son of sage Kasyapa, you are lustrous, and you are the destroyer of darkness and all sins. I bow to you!


Thaneeyaamsum Baamsoom Tava Charana Bangaeruha Bhavam

Virinchihi Sanjinvan virachayadhi lokaa navikalam

Vahatyenam Sowrihi katamapi Sahasrena Sirasaam

Haras Samsookshthyainam Bajathi Basidhoothdhoolana vaidhim


Oh Devi! Virinchi, the Creator (Brahma) gathers the dust from your feet to fulfill his creation of all the worlds. Shouri, the Adiseshan of Vishnu, with his thousand heads manages to carry this dust on his head. Hara (Shiva), sprinkles this powder as the sacred ash (Vibhoothi or Thiruneeru) on his whole body.

This is a sloka (hymn) of Soundarya Lahari (Waves of Beauty) written by Shri Adi Shankracharya. The verses of this sloka eulogize the beauty, grace and munificence of Goddess Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva.


Recitation of these slokas (hymns) can increase the positive aspects of the sun. One can acquire victory in one’s tasks and gain fame in the world.
